Clippers select Minnesota guard Cam Christie with the No. 46 pick of NBA draft

The Clippers selected Cam Christie with the 46th pick in the second round of the NBA draft on Thursday.

Christie played at Minnesota, where he averaged 11.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. Christie, who turns 19 next month, is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who shot 40.3% from the field and 39.1% from three-point range.

“I’m just going to bring a, you know, competitive mentality,” Christie said during an interview with ESPN moments after he was drafted. “Every day, I’m going to show up. I know I have a lot of work to do, but I have a lot of motivation and good people behind me to kind of propel me to help me get to that point.”

His brother, Max Christie, plays for the Lakers.

“It’s super cool to be NBA brothers,” Cam said of joining his brother Max in the league. “It’s really dope. So, I thank him a lot for everything he’s taught me and I’m super excited to go out and compete against him.”
